C.S Armstrong & Jay Rock Create “Own Two”

Published

on

Emerging as a fascinating and fiery force for R&B, C.S. Armstrong unveils a new single entitled “Own Two” [feat. Jay Rock] today. It notably marks his official debut for Republic Records. It’s the next step of an unbelievable journey for the child prodigy turned preacher and 8-year army veteran turned soul-shaking artist.

The track spotlights his staggering range as his voice simmers over laidback verses before the high-register hook, “I never leaned on another man. I’d rather live on my own two.” Jay Rock pulls up with deft and dynamic bars as a potent and poetic counterpoint. The song seamlessly fuses southern soul, towering gospel, West Coast hip-hop, and timeless R&B.

Recently, the modern-day bluesman also teamed up with none other than Black Thought of The Roots for “Welcome To America” from the Judas and the Black Messiah Soundtrack. Attracting critical praise, The New York Times highlighted Armstrong’s “gritty vocal choruses.”

Be on the lookout for more from C.S. Armstrong soon.

Born to a single mother in the service with a preacher grandma in his corner, C.S. Armstrong traveled an unbelievable road one step at a time. At 10-years-old, he preached in church as an ordained minister. At 16-years-old, he earned respect in the streets with his fists. At 18-years-old, he enlisted in the military to serve his country. Eight years later, he rolled into New York and lent his voice to one hip-hop banger after another. His instantly recognizable vocals shined on Statik Selektah’s “In The Wind” [feat. Joey Bada$$ & Big K.R.I.T] and Bun B, Prodigy, and Remy Bank’s “Where’s Your Leader.” His voice also coursed through Action Bronson’s tastemaker-approved Billboard Top 200 chart-topping Mr. Wonderful, in addition to joining the star on the road. Settling in Southern California, he powered Book’s “Last Man Standing” for the official Call of Duty: WWII trailer and dropped a pair of critically acclaimed independent projects, namely Truth Be Told [2019] and The Blue Tape [2020]. His voice echoed on Black Thought’s “We Could Be Good (United)” [feat. C.S. Armstrong & OSHUN] from the critical favorite Streams of Thought, Vol. 3: Cain & Able. Along the way, Dr. Dre became his “uncle,” Republic Records signed him, and he distilled gospel, blues, hip-hop, and rock into a sound as intoxicating and biting as aged whisky. Streamed millions of times and championed by Billboard, A COLORS SHOW, and more, OnesToWatch claimed, “The music is something to grow old with.” Now, he tells the story with no filter on a series of singles for Republic Records.

Johnny Que$t The Rebel Drops “Addicted 2 Money”

Published

on

By

Johnny Que$t The Rebel returns after his 2020 project Follow and prepares to continue his journey as one of hip-hop’s young stars with his latest single, Addicted 2 Money.

While Follow is a story of the hardships of obtaining your dreams, Addicted 2 Money is a look at money and value as a substance and finding comfort and refuge in them (to the point of obsession). The song turns into a self-made narrative of increasing personal value independent of external relationships, resources, and substances. In turn, Quest has focused his addictive personality on obtaining riches. The Bvtman produced track romanticizes the relationship between Quest and earning capital, and is a musical score for the hustler-at-heart. 

“People interact with you based on how they value you. My addiction became increasing my value.” – Johnny Que$t The Rebel
